Grant awarded to LEONIE
Last December the Netherlands Film Fund made a positive decision about our grant application for Leonie, the new film by Annette Apon. Dutch public broadcaster NTR has also expressed interest in the new version of the scenario. That means that the film, further supported by EYE Filmmuseum and the crowdfunding campaign, can finally be made.
Director Annette Apon is busy finalizing the lists of film material from the archives of EYE that will form the basis of this extraordinary story about the Dutch double agent Leonie Brandt. Hugo Naber is involved in the project as junior producer. On behalf of SNG Film Hugo will take part in the Rotterdam Lab 2019 during the CineMart at the IFFR and will also take part in the Visitors Programme of the Berlinale Co-Production Market 2019.
